Who Has Exciting News?

I am sooooooo excited! Today is an incredible, marvelous, wonderful day!!!


As you know, I have been in the midst of a move. It has taken a long time - and I still haven't unpacked my wonderful toys nor set up my new stamping space which will be lovingly called my Cubbyhole. However........ I did get the opportunity to make a card!!! I hadn't done that in about a month - and even though I had to sit at my kitchen table and use very limited supplies that I could find in my chaotic mess of a stamping supplies - it felt soooooooo good to create!!! I now remember why I love this hobby so much - it is so relaxing to sit and color and play with paper, etc.


I must give a GREAT BIG thank you to Nina for forcing (ummmmmmm... that might be too harsh/strong of a word, she didn't force me really) to create. See, it happened like this. A few months ago, Nina asked me to be a Guest Designer for Paper Cupcakes. I had no clue I'd be moving the end of June, so I excitedly said yes. Then the move entered my life. LOL! Nina graciously offered to let me out of the commitment I had made, but I asked to be allowed to continue, thinking I'd surely be ready. So, ready or not, here I am!


Pinch me to see if I'm dreaming! Woo Hoo!!! I really AM a guest designer for Paper Cupcakes!!! Isn't that awesome!?!?!? THANK YOU, Nina!!!


If you have never heard of or check out the Paper Cupcakes store, you really should go there. WOW! Nina has some of the cutest digital images!!! There is also an incredible gallery there, where you will surely find all kinds of inspiration for your own creativity.

Nina also has a challenge blog, where each week participants have the opportunity to showcase their papercrafting projects.





This week's challenge is BIRTHDAYS! Participants are to create birthday cards!


I couldn't resist using this adorable Paper Cupcakes image - Who Loves You




I generated the sentiments on my computer and transformed this card into a Birthday card without any difficulty at all.






I sure hope you'll join the birthday fun and make a card for this week's There's Magic in the air with Paper Cupcakes Challenge!
